One of the main reasons dental implants are a gold-standard tooth replacement option is because they give patients a biocompatible smile.
With biocompatible dental implants, patients will have a permanent and reliable new smile.
Here is more on how dental implants can give patients biocompatible new smiles.
Dental implants give patients biocompatible new smiles because they are made from materials that the body will accept. Typically, the dental implant post is made from titanium material. When the titanium dental implant post is surgically placed in the patient’s jawbone, the jawbone accepts it because titanium is a biocompatible material. The crown or prosthesis is also typically made from biocompatible materials, like acrylic.
Dental implants are also biocompatible because of the way they are structured. Dental implants have three main parts:
The dental implant post is designed to act like a natural tooth root. When the dental implant post is placed in the patient’s jawbone, it fuses with it like a natural tooth root would, giving patients a permanent new smile.
The abutment is what attaches the dental implant post to the tooth crown.
The tooth crown is what is visible when patients smile or speak. The tooth crown is designed to look like the patient’s natural teeth.
